Mercury Marine® showcases new 115 Pro XS FourStroke outboard at 2016 Bassmaster Classic
Competitive bass anglers have long considered Mercury Marine's Pro XS series the best performing, most reliable tournament-fishing outboards on the water. Now, Mercury, the world leader in commercial and recreational marine propulsion and technology, has produced another great outboard that gives freshwater anglers an edge on the competition: the new 115 Pro XS FourStroke outboard.
The Mercury 115 Pro XS, which was introduced globally at the recent Miami International Boat Show, was introduced to the bass world today at the 2016 Bassmaster Classic in Tulsa, Oklahoma. The 115 Pro XS is perfect for 17'-18' aluminum and fiberglass bass boats, as well as aluminum multispecies hulls in the same size range.
Based on the popular Mercury 115 FourStroke, the new Mercury 115 Pro XS delivers significantly better performance than any other high-output 115hp outboard on the market today. In fact, the new 115 Pro XS is 16 pounds lighter than the 115 OptiMax it replaces, and 18 pounds lighter than the nearest competing 115hp engine. Its 2.1L displacement is higher than that of any competing 115hp engine. This unbeatable combination delivers higher torque, better performance and greater durability – everything a bass angler needs to make the leaderboard in tournament season.
Building on its Pro XS heritage, the new 115 Pro XS was intelligently designed to provide fresh and saltwater anglers and other boaters exactly what they've been asking for – an outboard that is light and second to none in performance. It delivers:
In addition, the new 115 Pro XS offers the following industry-exclusive options for high-output outboard engine models:
As a member of the powerful Mercury Pro XS family, the new 115 Pro XS FourStroke also delivers these unparalleled benefits:
